The insanity defense

I'm reading my criminal law book - we're doing the insanity defense. And as usual, I stumbled across something that made me giggle.

From State v. Green, Tennessee Court of Appeals, 1982:

"Green carried a bag around with him, explaining to his parents that the bag 'kept him company.'"

Needless to say, he ended up murdering someone - a police officer. And I'm sure the bag wasn't with him that day. Bags just aren't the best things to keep one company. Unlike towels. Which are infinitely useful and should be carried around at all times.

At the "nature" resort we carry towels wherever we go
